This is an amazing school!!! I sent both of my daughters there. They have both recieved the best education, attention and support from their teachers. They have taken time out to educate them on their levels and what they are struggling with or advancing in. They are very versitile and all so genuine and devoted to the children. (side note... and the principle is easy to look at.... ahem!)
We moved to the area two years ago and my daughter attended the school in our disctict and struggled through the whole year- it was painful to watch. My husband I decided to open enroll her into Northpoint and it was the best decision. Her teacher was a wonderful, caring lady who kept in touch with me on a regular basis and was great with my daughter- that year alone helped my daughters confidence in herself and in her more difficult subjects- math and spelling. I am so glad we made the switch. The parent involvement is wonderful and SUPER active too. We now have our other daughter there and she is loving it as well. Northpoint is an amazing school and we greatly appreciate all the teachers and staff did for our family.
This school was a huge disappointment. It seemed to have the potential to be a great place, but fell way short for us. Teacher was seemed rather spineless changing her direction and use of materials and influenced by whether a parent had a complaint about a particular book or if there was too much or not enough homework. There seemed to be an excess of "political correctness" to the point of trying to get parents to forego their own use of a moral compass, wanting to gain support for the idea of teaching kids "there is no right or wrong". Principal seems like a nice guy, but don't challenge him. He is a bit air-headed but won't like it if you expose what he doesn't know. The school will talk the talk -- of being all about excellence but the walk is rather dismal. Rather than empowering the student, it is a good example of some people choosing a profession to work with children because it would be too threatening to interact with those on their own level (or who exceed their small base of knowledge).
We have been with Kenneth Hall for 5 years and are very sad that it will be our last as we will be going to a new school in the fall. I can't begin to say what it has done for my kids educcation. I feel very lucky that they had the opportunity to attend such a great school. They have offered so many things for my kids with Art Adventure and paid field trips from the PTA. Had a chance to make some great friends. We will miss it greatly. I hope the new school will offer as much as Kenneth has.
